Before taking a look at either type of vehicle, it’s important for drivers to consider what type of lifestyle they’re living and what they need out of a vehicle as a result. Naturally, drivers with larger families will care more about seating capacity than drivers who are living on their own. Likewise, drivers who have long, extended commutes will want to pay great attention to details such as fuel economy ratings and ride comfort.

SUV Advantages

The obvious benefit of purchasing an SUV over a sedan is storage space. In addition to their larger size, SUVs are often designed to include more storage compartments and features than sedans. Aside from this, SUVs tend to perform better in poor road conditions due to their bulk, allowing them to maintain grip on slippery roads better than the average sedan.

Sedan Advantages

Overall, sedans make for great commuter vehicles. Because sedans ride lower to the ground, drivers will find them more comfortable to drive than SUVs. Sedans also receive better fuel economy ratings, which often makes them cheaper vehicles in the long run as well. Performance ratings also tend to be better in sedans, giving drivers a more exciting and responsive drive.
